Before the suspension for Coronavirus, Novak Djokovic decided to participate in the ATP 500 tournament in Dubai where he arrived in the final after having passed in series Jaziri, Kohlschreiber and Kachanov always in two sets and after having canceled three match points in the semifinal to the French Gael Monfils (fifteenth game won by Djokovic in his career by canceling the match point).

In the final, he beat the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-3 6-4. "Nole" confirms in this 2020 his unbeatenness having a balance of 18 wins compared to zero defeats. The World number 1 has won 17 Grand Slam singles titles, the third-most in history for a male player, five ATP Finals titles, 34 ATP Tour Masters 1000 titles, 14 ATP Tour 500 titles, and has held the No.

1 spot in the ATP rankings for over 280 weeks. In majors, he has won a record eight Australian Open titles, five Wimbledon titles, three US Open titles, and one French Open title. Matt Ebden believes that more than the tennis, Djokovic has a passion in him for helping people.

“Novak I know reasonably well but we never played and are not very close, however due to dealing with player council etc as he is our president, it’s easy to see he has that Serbian passion for people and fighting for things he believes in and helping those around him" - the Australian explained in a recent interview.

As president of the ATP player’s council, Novak has been on the forefront of placing the issues of tennis players.
